A few weeks ago, I read a post by Emery Ellen that said ” I think i fall in love a little bit with anyone who shows me their soul, this world is so guarded and fearful , I appreciate rawness so much”. When I first read this , I thought to myself…This is me ...

So, what do you do when you know a bunch of roses isn’t going to cut it this year?? Take her to a rose garden says Tapi! He knows I love going for long walks and he knows I love flowers, so where better to go for a long walk than in a rose garden. ...

Do Better.

For me, a new year means an opportunity to do better. It represents a fresh start. Growing up I used to hate it when my Dad constantly asked me what my goals were. I think I actually started to seriously dislike the word “goal” in itself. In job interviews I would have to stop myself from ...

Home Sweet Home

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love going back to Zim. We pretty much go home every year (notice how i still refer to it as home). To be honest, if it came to it, Tapi and I would probably sell our own kidneys to buy our flights home. That’s how much we ...

Since stepping out of my banking world I’ve pretty much immersed myself into the fashion world. It’s probably been the most exhilarating and challenging experience for me.

  Needless to say the conversation about ‘Relationship rules’ continued throughout the week. It got me thinking about this book that Tapi and I read a few months after our wedding ‘The 5 love languages’ by Gary Chapman. Each chapter leaves you gob-smacked and it’s literally ‘aha’ moment after aha! (the term ‘aha moment’ won’t make sense ...

Rules of Engagement

06. October 2014 Truth 0
A few years ago whilst speaking to our marital mentors, they mentioned that when they were in the early stages of their relationship they decided to right down some basic relationship “household rules” for each other, just so things were clear from the beginning and the expectations and boundaries were set. So this week we ...
